I've recently switched to OpenBSD on the sparc system acting as my cable
The gateway -- and other systems in the house -- share an NIS password map
served out from a Linux box.
It appears that Linux and OpenBSD have different ideas about how to
generate MD5 passwords. Depending on which box I generate the password on,
I can log into my 'bsd systems or my linux systems, but not both.
The obvious solution is to start using old-style encrypted passwords.
However, this seems like it ought to be unnecessary -- is there any way to
get these systems to interoperate with the same NIS map and MD5 passwords?
